Lost Dog

There is a friendly small brown dog wandering in the 98-9900 block of Oboe. Looks like she may have had a collar at some point.
Let us know if you know any thing.

Mosguito Control

We put a dose of larvicide in the storm drains this afternoon. Every one needs to check around their house and get rid of any standing water.
Thanks to Bob and Sandy for the help with the larvicide.

City Department of Neighborhoods is in Westwood

An inspector from the Department of Neighborhoods has been going up and down our streets looking for violations of city ordinances such as storing your garbage can and recycle can in view from the street.
Please be aware that residents cannot store the green recycle can or the brown garbage can where anyone can see it as they pass by.

2-Garbage_Collection_0623_2014Here are the riles on solid waste collection from the City of Houston. Let’s all try to follow them. It is up to HPD to enforce them since they are city ordainces, so I am sure they can issue tickets for infractions.

We recently put out the larvicide in the storm sewers and in the ditch next to the railroad tracks. Please check around your house and make sure there is no standing water. The weather is getting ideal for hatching out a whole bunch of mosquitoes.

Big Green Cans

Remember, the big green recycle cans are not due to be picked up until June 26th. The small green bins we are using now will be picked up the recycle day before the 26th. I believe that will be the 12th. Hard to believe we finally are going to be like the rest of the city.

Well they are already here!! Amazing.

The first scheduled pick up is June 26th. That is our regular recycle date.

Remember, trash cans should not be visible from the street according to COH code.

Bellfort Park Apartments

A company has contacted us for an endorsement of their project to demolish the Bellfort Park Apartments and rebuild new ones. They would still be affordable housing but it would be gated, new construction with strict requirements for the renters. The civic Club board can see nothing but positive result for the neighborhood. That being said, we are in the process of endorsing this project. I will keep everyone informed.
